    Infocom was founded on June 22, 1979 by MIT staff and students led by Dave Lebling, Marc Blank, Albert Vezza, and Joel Berez and lasted as an independent company until 1986 when it was bought by Activision. Activision finally shut down the Infocom division in 1989, although they released some titles in the 1990s under the Infocom Zork brand. Activision abandoned the Infocom trademark in 2002. Steve Meretsky wrote some games too, as an Implementor with the Great Author Douglas Adams.

      "This Technical College offers a two year course in Computer Studies. Subjects covered include the c programming
       language, selected because it can BIT TWIDDLE... The Pascal Programming Language is recommended as a Teaching
       Language, it is elegant, and has special commands like variable TYPES e.g. [ January .. December], [Ace .. King ],
       RECORD's, ARRAY's... CONSTANT, INTEGER, BYTE, REAL, BOOLEAN (TRUE or FALSE), CHAR, and STRING. if (KeyPressed = TRUE)
       then isQuit. Another Command is GotoXY ( 1, 1 ) for the Screen Cursor, and ClrScr ().^
       WHILE / DO, and  REPEAT / UNTIL isQuit Loops. Procedures, and Functions - Returns one Variable, 
       e.g. Result := Sqrt (144). Plot (X, Y, Color), Draw (X1, Y1, X2, Y2, Color)...^
       Turtle Graphics: Turn Left, Turn Right, Forward, SetPenColor, SetPenDown...^
       You can download the Pascal Programming Language (named after a French Philosopher and Mathamatician) FREE from the
       internet, and find a Manual, or Teaching book in your local Bookshop. The Pascal Language can be COMPILE'ed, from 
       test.pas for example. Any Errors are shown and can be fixed in the Program Editor. When correct it then creates a RUN
       File: .COM, or .EXE .^^

       Technical Colleges also do short courses for 2 hours a week, for 10 weeks, Evening Classes, or Saturday Morning like
       'Introduction to the Internet' and 'Writing Web Pages'. 'NoteTab Pro' and 'CuteFTP Professional' are highly
       recommended for editing Web Pages, and Uploaded to the Internet - FTP: File Transfer Protocol. Download them from
       the internet for little. A good book is 'HTML 4 - 10 Minute Guide' - Hypertext Markup Language, developed by Sir Tim

!     The transcript upon which this game is based is copyrighted by
!     Infocom, 1987.  The rights today belong to Activision, and no
!     attempts have been made to secure permission from them. From their
!     track record, they probably don't care about this obscure use of a
!     by-product of one of their old Infocom games. This certainly can't
!     be any worse than the Hugo port of Zork.
! 
!     This transcript programmed in Inform by Allen Garvin for no
!     apparent reason (well, actually, he was bored and decided to
!     program in one of the example transcripts for fun--Beyond Zork's
!     was the most complete and self-contained); he can be reached at
!     earendil@faeryland.tamu-commerce.edu. All code may be freely
!     distributed and modified, as long as no commercial profit is
!     involved. It'd be kinda neat if people made full games out of the
!     transcripts of this or other Infocom games.
!
! Note also this is unfinished.  I got bored before I could get around to
! programming the combat.
